Excellent Marion Pie

ONly had the pie, which was excellent. Crust is flakey and light. Filling is not too sweet. Most excellent.

Tried out this new location in cedar mills, everything looks fresh but the chocolate croissants were sitting out too long I think. Kind of hard. If only they warmed up bakery items. I was floored to see a 6-ok of hot dog buns selling for $5.99. Yeah, $6. Total for two items costed $6. Go to Bales thrift way just... More

This is a great place to get a bakery item, cup of coffee or delicious sandwich. It is a cozy delight. The staff are super friendly and the decor is eclectic with mismatched chairs and different size tables. I had a Mediterranean melt sandwich and it was wonderful and big enough to share. The GC is just down a couple... More

I was actually just at the Woodstock location, but it did not come up as an option (Since it is a local chain, it should all be the same) Beautiful baked goods. Old fashioned deep fried donuts and long johns are not on hand. Go here for special brunch items like tarts with seasonal fruits. Don't miss the monkey muffins.... More

We stop here several times when we are in Portland. Some of the breads are very good, especially the Como. I bought a few loafs to take home to California. The cookies are good but a little dry

We loved the coffee and croissants there. A very nice selection of pastries. The lunch menu looks worthy of going back if I am in the neighborhood at that hour.

We have been eating here every time we travel to Portland from California. The breakfast sandwiches are pretty good and some of the bread is good. In particular we like the Como bread. The biscuits are a little dry ax well as some of the hand pies, etc. service is pretty good. The place is convenient and has plenty of... More

I have been eating at Grand Central Bakery for years. And I have never been disappointed in their sandwiches or their sweet treats. My favorite sandwich is the turkey/chutney. But their seasonal specials are always good. But do save room for one of their cookies. I cannot always find a good bakery at the coast; therefore, I like to "stock-up"... More

Our first visit to the SE 13th st. store was great. My wife got a very good tuna salad sandwich and I tried their Monkey Muffins (delicious.) We're going back tomorrow or the next day. If I lived in Portland, I'd spend way too much time and money at this bakery.
